Hi Im Sonnys youngest daughter Sherise and I just went to the Warr Path site to check it out. Thanks for updating it all these years. I am writing to inform everyone of Billy Rodericks (Mable and Sam) passing on 10/09/22 for the website update. Here is a couple good photos.

The top one has my son Liam Johnson in it. :)

  Hello this is Scott. Dad suffered a stroke on Wednesday night. He was able to get himself
  into Sharla's house and they called the ambulance. He has lost his speech and the feeling
  in his right arm and hand. His right leg is effected but he seems to be able to still use it.
  He is having trouble swallowing so has a feeding tube in for nourishment. He has had a
  couple of rough days and they are taking him in for another CT scan to make sure nothing
  has changed with the stroke area. We hope you all say a prayer for him and we will
  provide further updates as needed.

  Thanks! Scott Roderick

Question from webmaster (Steve) to Sharla (Sam[Sonny]/Mabel):

Question came up in the conference about your grandmother� father Samuel Warr�s death.  We thought
it was in 1935 in Los Angeles.  I also thought it was an automobile accident in which one of his
daughters was driving.  Would you ask your Grandmother for details for us.

Sharla' reply:

Grandma thinks that accident happened in 1934 or 35. She thinks that accident happened in Van Nuys
California. Aunt Betty was in the car she was about sixteen or Seventeen she was not driving.

So sorry we missed yet another conversation.  We were in Ohio visiting Vinnie�s family.  Her Aunt died a few weeks ago so there
was lots to take care of.  I think quarterly sounds good and I hope to be able to join in.  Our grandson, Rory Walsh, continues
to do great in school and while we were hoping he might find some other goal rather than Astro Physicist, so far he has landed
on Philosophy as possibly a second major.  So much for being taken care of in our golden years,

Love to you all,



If you want the opinion of a computer scientist (aka computer science teacher for 35 years) who had belatedly become most
interested in the science most of interest to we humans (our expansive ecosystem), to hold the profession of these great names:
Einstein, Hawking, Einstein, Kaku, would be monumental.  While most of what that entails doesn't happen for billions of years,
to be on the leading edge of discovering the 90 percent of the of the universe nobody knows next to nothing about is wonderful.

Hope we will see you in the conference on December 30.

Family and Friends,

The message, below, is from my son, Brent. I�m sure you have all heard of the devastating and deadly wildfire that wiped out the
town of Paradise, Ca. Well, Brent�s ex-wife Alicia and his daughter Sophia and stepson Forrest live right on the edge of Paradise.
Fortunately, thank God, none of them were home when the fires broke out and although Brent mentions that Alicia�s house might have
been lost, at this point they are not sure either way. They have not been able to go into the area where Alicia lives to find out.
Brent is one of many thousands of volunteers working in the community to help those most affected.

Please pray for my son and his family.

Much love,

Nicholas Warr

To: Pamela Warr  Nicholas Warr , Suzanne Rush

Hi guys here�s an email I got from Sophia�s school. It is likely that Alicia�s house burned down, so a great deal of its contents
relate to Sophia and Forrest. Most of my focus will be helping as a volunteer for the school.

I�ll forward more information as I get it.

Love B

Dear Blue Oak Community,

Today, 11/10/2018, a few of us met at Blue Oak to coordinate an effort to offer relief and support to our Blue Oak community.
We consider you a part of the Blue Oak community, if you are current, or former, staff or family who needs the support of a
caring and familiar community.

Our goal is to offer help to those families who are displaced and who have lost their homes. We also hope to offer some familiar
faces and opportunities for some sense of normalcy for kids to be with other kids in a safe and familiar environment. Volunteers
have been identified to call the families we already know have lost their homes or are currently displaced.  If you would like to
volunteer or have a specific skill set you think is relevant to this situation - please email summer@blueoakcharterschool.org
Sunday 11/11 and Monday 11/12 from 12-2pm

We will be accepting donations for our families in the Parent Center at the school.

From what we have heard, most families have been able to pick up basic clothing, so we have simplified our list down to the following:

New pillows and pillowcases
Gift cards
New blankets (throw size) especially for kids
Gift cards are what we are strongly encouraging.  This way families can purchase their own items. Visa gift cards are good and
also think of places where many needs can be met in one place, i.e Target, Walmart, etc.

PLEASE SHARE this information.

I just looked at the Warrpath site. Surprised to see me on stilts Steve. You're funny.
I'm watching the Micky Mouse 90tg birthday celebration. I remember Aunt Peggy saying that her and Micky celebrate the same birthday? Do I remember right?

I COULDN'T RESIST, but you are the funny one.  A tribute to your mother.  I do not know Aunt Peggy's birthday.  Maybe Fran,
Tiffany or Jennifer can enlighten us.

Aunt Peggy and Logan Berlinger, my youngest, also share the same birthday!  Aunt Peggy was born November 2, 1928 (Logan 2006).

It looks like Mickey�s Bday is November 18, 1928. So maybe Peggy meant that she shared a birthday month with him : ).
Pretty cool that they were born the same month and year.

~Jen Berlinger

Yes, November 2, 1928.  She had a set of Micky & Minnie, in pottery, I think.  I didn�t make the connection with her birthday
though.  Thanks for that Freddie.

My son & daughter-in-law have them with their small Disney collection.

Tom & Grumpy share 1937, but don�t know if the dates are the same.

 Dear Family and Friends

Thank you to so many who supported my Chick-Fil-A fund-raiser several weeks ago. See the pictures
attached of the completed shelter my dad and scout friends helped me build.

The Equestrian Center at the Irvine Great Park was greatly impacted by the fires last summer.
It was an emergency situation with 200 horses being evacuated wtihin 2 hours. Many horses have
still not yet returned to the location, but with new buildings already in place and with our help
in building the shelter for the horse meds/feed (see the attached pictures), most of the rest of
the facility will be occupied again before Christmas :-)

The cost of materials to build the shelter was more than $1200.  We received $207 from the
Chick-Fil-A fund-raiser and we have made a little dent with the "Go Fund Me" page I started too!
Many friends and family expressed a desire to help me out and since you may not have been able to
attend the Chick-Fil-A fundraiser and may not have seen our "Go Fund Me" page, we are sending this
email to you to update you on our status and let you know how you can help us reach our additional
$900 goal to replenish our out of pocket expense for this project.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you so much for any help you may provide.

I looked at the WRAGS link and saw your video and your narrative on the Columbia River.  I was only 11 to 12
years old when dad made Tour Talk but I remember what it looked like.  It was a reel to reel tape deck housed
in a metal box that had buttons on it to turn it on at specific mile markers to hear the narration regarding
the location you were driving through.  It was really cool.

Do you have any of the WRAGS / Tour Talk narrations?

As for the Frisbie, dad indeed was the inventor or co-inventor but Uncle Fred took the invention and ran
with it.  He created the plastic Pluto Platter and took it to state and county fairs to sell and market it.
Penny and Cathy Hornbeek (maiden names) helped display and play with it at the fairs to show it off.  Fred
never gave dad credit for the invention but, in reality, he did all the work to sell it.  Dad couldn't take
the time as he needed to work full time to support his family.  However, I think it hurt dad deeply that Fred
never acknowledged dad as part inventor and dad, to my knowledge, never asked or wanted any money from it but
it would have been nice to be recognized.  Fred eventually sold the invention to Whamo and received royalty
rights which made him a lot of money.  Fred was a butt head which is why Aunt Lucille divorced him.

Family reunions tend to be in August, and the attire on women and boys looks pretty summery.  I bet they didn�t dress
that way in December.  My second boy was born August 2, 1967, and I remember my mom being out of town while I was in
the hospital.  That could account for my absence from the reunion.

Jen, if Logan needs to interview family members, I�d be glad to answer questions.  Would he like to have the Warr
family crest that Peggy had made?

Hi Steve!

How the heck are you?!

Just wanted to update you on Joshua's (Don's son, Sam's grandson) Air Force career. He cross-trained into
Intelligence in 2011. We were stationed at Travis AFB, in Northern California from 2011 to 2016. He's been
on three deployments. He was awarded a Commendation Medal in 2016 for his work at Travis.

We are now back home in Texas! Joshua is now an Intelligence Technical Training Instructor at Goodfellow
AFB in San Angelo. In April of this year, he sewed on Technical Sergeant (E-6), quite an accomplishment
for being in the Air Force for only 8 years! He's quite proud to continue in the footsteps of so many
Warr's who dedicated their lives to service.

We hope all is well with you!


Hi Amanda,

It's really great that Joshua is serving our country in such a great capacity.  I was deep into combat intelligence
in my career.  I maintained my branch Armor, but server as S-2 (battalion level), G-2 (Division and Corps level)
and worked with J-2 (echelons above Corps).  Nothing is more important in any military at any time than knowing
your enemy.

Wow!!!  I love seeing this history.  I hope that someone fills
you in about Uncle Max.  I was under the impression that he was
Navy, but cannot be certain.
Thank you for sharing about our family military history.  I
remember Mom (Mae) telling me about how Grandma signed papers
giving the younger boys permission to join.  Hard for her to do
mom said, but kinda had to.  Hard times with Grandpa having passed.
Thank you for sharing about our family military history.

Just a correction.  Billy Max Warr, Jr. was in the US Air Force
from 1966 - 1972.  He died in a mid-air crash between a C130 and
Navy Fighter plane.  14 men died in this collison.  Bill was a
Flight Engineer and making the US Air Force a career.   He left
behind his wife of 5 1/2 years and three children ages 4, 2 and
1 year of age at that time. Bill is buried at Eternal Valley in
Newhall, CA Thanks,Susie (Warr) Miller P.S.I think I was told Max
Warr was in the Merchant Marines.  You could check with Bonnie or
Rod for verification.

Hello all,

   Well, another Warr has answered the call to duty. I'm proud
   to say my son Joshua just completed boot in San Antonio
   (Lackland AFB). I was very impressed with the extended training
   program that included tactics and defense, definetely not his Dad's
   Air Force - and it costs 5 bucks to get your hair mowed now!!!!.
   Anyway, he's off to Monterey, CA., for almost two years of Russian
   language school. I never knew what he was talking about before but
   COME ON!!!!  Anyway, a great opportunity and I'm very happy for
   him and his wife Amanda.

p.s., my condolences to Judy and her family.

pp.ss. Anyone ever consider adding up all the Warr's that served?
I thought about it during the Lackland graduation ceremony when they
asked for vets to stand. I think we have quite a few and I'm pretty
sure Rod was but they'd accept anybody in back in those days.....

I have Uncle Don's Zippo lighter from 1953 as USAF MSGT in Korea.,
lot's of detail, pretty cool......And I'm sorry Nick, we can't all
be Marine's, (don't say it)....

Hi Steve & Kathy:

Thought I would let you guys know I have moved to Spokane Valley,
Washington a few months ago. I had lost my real estate office job
and I just wanted to be near Mom.  Mom (Mabel) will be turning 90
yrs. old this May 14th.  She looks beautiful and healthy.  I can
only hope to be as much at her age if I make it till then. Also
have some bad news.  My brother-in-law, Dick Juell, died this last
January.  I understand he died of natural causes in his favorite
chair.  A very intelligent man and so very, very funny.  He will
be missed by a lot of us. Keeping up with Ken's recovery. The
picture of him looks great. You guys are so very strong. He looks
like he has improved so much. I have enjoyed your journalism.

Love you guys,

Hi Steve:
My computer was down for a couple weeks and just now picking up
your message. The reunion was just as fun as ever. You and your
whole family was so missed and it was so obvious. We were all
thinking of you guys and how strong all of you are. Aunt Dorothy
was totally missed. She is such a lovely person. There were a lot
of campers set up. I think all the spots were used. Contest on
the most decorative set up and, of course, Chuck won. His spot
looked like an Hawian Island. My car broke down and had to rent
one while they were fixing mine. Sure wasn't ready for that.
Whole new transmission so my trip didn't go too smooth. Camera
broke and I have no pictures. Please. someone should be sending
theirs in to you. We all had such a good time. Sure appreciate
you keeping us informed with Ken. What a strong guy he is and I
sure wish him the best for him to heal.

Love ya,

Ya Steve, we missed you and the other Warr boys.  My daughter
(Maelee) played photographer.  I am sure that we will have many
to send.  Aunt Mable was the Reunion Queen for the weekend and
we were all her royal subjects.  Starting with the little ones,
they went up and got beads from the queen and a kiss.  Then we
big kids followed in line.  Maelee got a pic of everyone with
her I think.  Aunt Bonnie and the boys came to Tammy and Dales
Thurs evening for the dinner.  They had taken Uncle Maxes ashes
out on a fishing boat that day from Gold Beach.  They didnt stay
for the reunion.  It was good to see Aunt Bonnie for the time we
got to though.

I won the painting that your Mom did for my Mom.  I am totally
trilled!  :)

Hope all is well and hope to see you at the next one.

...my Son Scott survived a mild stroke on November 2nd, 2 days after his wife
Paula passed away in Portland, Oregon where her Mother and Sister live.  (Scott
and the 2 boys live in Fremont, California)  They had been separated for about
6 months...  Scotty and his sons were with her when she passed.

Scott was sent home from the hospital after a week with strict orders to;
1.)  Stop drinking, 2.) Start physical therapy to regain the use of his
right arm and hand, 3.) Lose weight and get on an exercise program, 4.) Take
the meds prescribed for him for high cholesterol and high blood pressure...

Thanks for taking the time to post information about Ken and his family
including your own activities. Our hearts go out to you all during this
difficult time and our prayers are with you. May you especially  be
uplifted this Christmas and know God's love for you. I also looked at
Warrpath today and am so grateful for all the pictures and connections
you are maintaining for our family. Thank you, Thank  you!!

Update: My grandma Sylvia Jean Palmer passed away last Sunday December
14, 2008. She was 83yrs old. She had a stroke and eventually her heart
stopped. Her husband Raymond Palmer if you recall is Grandma's (Dorothy
Warr) cousin. They both have those long lasting Nay genes. They both have
those Nay eyes that remind me of Grandpa Nay. They also keep themselves
so busy with working on something (Dorothy and her knitting & Ray working
in the yard or cracking nuts), it seems to keep them going.  He is handing
tough, but not in the best of spirits after losing his beloved wife of 65

Dear Steve,

My Mother Charlene Warr passed away this morning.  She had uterine cancer
that went into her bones.  Marty flew in from Seattle and we were all with
her until late last night and she died just a few hours afterwards.

She chose to be cremated.

I have attached a picture of her after her first surgery when she was feeling
pretty good.

Peace~Erin Warr

P.S please note my new email address

Life is not just the number of breaths we take ~~but the moments that take
our breath away ~~ smile ! it improves your face value :o)

Merry, Happy and a great big Ho, Ho, Ho!!  Happy holidays!!!!

This past year has been a wild one for yours truly.  I have been in
many different situations in my life.  I have pretty much found my
place at my job which I have had for approximately five months.
I am very happy working at Sideman & Bancroft.  Proud to be part
of a firm that takes value in the work they do for the community.
I am living with Gina Isi and her children Nikka and Brianna.
Great roommate situation.  Life has been quite simple.  My children
are healthy and strong minded individuals whom I am proud of each
and every one of them  (all four of them to be exact).  Felicia (14)
is in high school and keeping her grades at a very decent reputable
level of pleasing her parents and her chances are good when wanting
to tryout for the high school tennis team.  Meghan (12) is a big 7th
grader now and grower taller then me.  She has truly found herself
and has confidence to boot.  She played soccer over this past fall
season and did rather well for playing with girls much older then her.
Skyler (8) is still as cute as ever.  Now I have to start focusing on
treating him no longer as the baby.  He is a big boy now as I am so
frequently reminded of by him. LOL.   Skyler has really exceled in
many ways.  He enjoyed soccer and met many new friends.  Skyler is
a bright kid and is very sweet and generous young man.  Justin is
still living with his dad and trying to get through his own situations
in life.  He too has grown into an independant individual which is
hard for me to accept, but he is almost 18 and I have to let him
grow and be responsible for his actions.  I love them all.  Each
day I learn different ways of how to raise children.  They are
constantly throwing a damn curve ball our way as parents.  Sorry
there is no book for this.  LOL.
I want to say I have been blessed with so many great friends in my
life and that to me is the best gift of all.  Thank you for the year
of laughter, support and love.  Let's continue the trend.  I plan on
it getting better every year.  The year 2008 will be the best yet.
I have so much to look forward to.  Cheers.

I was surfing, and found your website.  According to some family history
information we have, my husband, Martin George Rockwell is the great
grandson of Elizabeth Harriet Ames and Walter McFarlane Packer.  Their
daughter, Eliza Pearl Packer, was my husband's grandmother.  It was
wonderful to find their pictures on your website.

Hi Everyone,

I just want to let everyone know that Elden passed away this morning around
8am mst.  He died peacefully in his sleep.  The funeral will be in Eugene
and I'll let everyone know the details as soon as possible.  Mom's doing as
well as expected but any phone calls to her would really help.  Her first
comment after she realized he was gone was, "Oh, Elden.  I love you.  Goodbye."
Then she turned to me and said, "We knew it was going to happen.  It's a blessing
that he won't have to suffer any more."  Then she started to cry and all three
of us had a good cry.  We then said a prayer over him and released him to that
God who gave him to us.

Please pass this email on to the rest of the family.  We will probably have
his funeral this coming weekend or some such.

Love, Dennis

The funeral for next Monday January 29 at 1 pm pst in Eugene.  It will be held
in the LDS church where they went to for so long.  The address is 1100 President
Street, Eugene, OR 97401

Hi family!!!  Was just sitting at work and family popped in my head, so decided to
take a break from the boring paperwork and check out what's happening with the Warrs.
Missing family and hoping all are well.

Hi Steve, it's Don Warr (Sam). Can't seem to link on the website for emailing.
Client not available or some such. What's the status of reunion in Coos Bay?
I'm going to try and make it. I live now in Frisco - north of Dallas and am
thinking of an exhausting but fun road trip next summer. Any chance of putting
a NEWS form on the website. I know that can get too close to being like work

It's funny, my sons (21 and 23) suddenly have alot of interest in our family
history and badger me for stories. Reminds me of Eugene, COLD Coos Bay, et al...

Sam and Wanda are doing fine ....

Hope everyone is well and thanks once again for the website. And an interesting
FYI - my high school/college/while I was in the military sweetheart found me by
googling our name and came across the website. Second chances?????? Oh, and I
am not married - figure I better make that clear...

Hi guys, (please forward this to the rest of our family)

Just to let you know the latest.  Elden has now deteriorated to the point where he is now
confined to a hospital bed.  We have it situated during the day so that he can look out
the window.  The last few weeks has shown a marked decline.  He cannot walk anymore.
Even with two people holding him up, it's more of a sliding his feet across the floor.
He just can't get the signal from his brain to his legs even though you can tell he is
trying.  He leans back which causes us to push him forward and he thinks we are trying
to push him over frontwards which causes him to lean even farther back.  If I try to
show him that if I let him, he will fall back, he gets angry that now I am trying to
make him fall backward.  It's very frustrating for him and us and it just won't work any
more to get him to walk.  A wheel chair is ok to get him from place to place but getting
him in and out of the chair is extremely difficult not to mention the toilet and the bed.

He no longer knows how to brush his teeth.  We've been doing it for him but I don't know
how effective we are.  He doesn't understand when we try to roll him over to clean and
change his underwear so he just gets angry.  The nurses from hospice are really great
with him, firm but great.  He gets angry at them and they just ignore it and keep on
doing what they need to.  At this rate, I'm not sure he will last through the year.  He
may plateau again which he usually does in his deterioration process, so we'll see.

As for mom, she is really depressed seeing Elden deteriorate this quickly.  When she
stays busy, it's bearable.  However, she just finished making an afgan and has no desire
to make any more.  I think what I'm going to do for the next little while is get all of
her pictures out and have her help me organize them into books and such.  She also has
a ton of slides that I may turn into pictures or on to a dvd.  The dvd is pretty pricey
but so are having all those slides converted into pictures, so I'm not sure which
direction I'll go.

To top it all off, mom went to the doctor yesterday because her quivering and pain has
markedly increased.  What we found is that she has a severe bladder infection so we
have medicine going into her for that.  It has really wiped her out today.  I've been
pushing water into her (which she resists) and now she is taking a nap.

As for my trip to Wenatchee, Washington, to find Joe, I'll go if mom is feeling better
which I expect she will.  To say the least, I'm a bit worried about her.  The last time
I saw her like this is when I went to Eugene when she had pneumonia.  She was extremely
wiped out from that and she isn't quite so bad this time, but it is still a bit scary.
With Elden's deterioration, I'm really not ready to see mom deteriorate.

Two mornings ago when I came in with Marti to get Elden up (the last time Marti and I
were able to do so without the nurses) I noticed mom was feeling really down.  It could,
on hindsight, have been the precurser to her simptoms of the bladder infection (confusion,
pain, wobbly legs, grogginess, etc).  Anyway, I asked if she was all right and she said,
"I can't remember any of my grand children.  Do I have any?"  I almost wanted to cry.
After we started reminding her of all of her wonderful grandchildren, she said she now
remembered some of them but that she hadn't seen them in years.  I then reminded her of
her wonderful birthday party four months earlier and how many of her grandchildren had
been there.  "Really," she said as she brightened up.  "Did they call me 'grandma'?"

Anyway, as for my trip, hospice has informed me that they will provide respite care for
up to 5 days in the local nursing home, so I'm going to put Elden in the nursing home
the day I leave.  They have a van they will use to transport him and I feel confident
they will take good care of him for those few days.  Also, there will be some volunteers
and friends from the church who will look in on mom while I'm gone, so I think she will
be ok.  Marti will be in her last week of the semester so she can't take any time off to
stay home, but I think I'll have plenty of people to watch over mom.

Guys, this is all so sad.  Taking care of these two wonderful people has really affected
me more than I thought it would.  It will be hard to let either of them go.  If you get
a moment, call or write to mom.  She will appreciate it greatly.

Love from Rexburg,

Sorry about not getting back to you, I've really been busy with new relationship
and new career..  It was great hearing from you with an update about your family
especially news about the new babies.  They are so great and lovable at that age.
I know Brenda's 2 are great, we're happy that hey aren't quite the same age with
being 15 months apart in age.  They sure do keep Brenda and Shaun busy and Belize
when she is home.  Belize just finished her first year at BYU and is looking
forward to next year.

Scott's 3 are sure growing fast.  Britany Graduated from Ashland Highland High
School in June, very nostalgic day in all our lives, we were all there for the
ceremony along with a couple of days.  We all loved living in Ashland so much,
it was a great time in all our lives.  It was especially great in that both Robin
and Scott Graduated 24 year ago at the very same High School,  Logan at 15 now
towers above both Scott and I at 6'1" and is doing great also at Ashland High.
Austin is a brave little guy just like his father at 8 years old  has no fear and
very mischievous and having the time of his life.

Jennifer, on the other hand is having some major difficulty with Post Partum
Depression and Cassidy, her 5 month old is having difficulty with premature
fusion of the scalp and may have to be fractured to allow proper growth of her
brain and correct the growth so as to restrict chances of permanently being
deformed.  It's been a very difficult 5 months for all of us, especially
Jennifer beginning with a 2 1/2 month premature birth, we are all praying for them.

Lew (Mable) Roderick Has made a near miraculous recovery from a horrific automobile
accident on April 19, 2006.  The company truck he was driving was T-boned by another
truck injuring his entire left side.  Ribs 2 through 11 were fractured and his left
arm was nearly shattered.  The injuries are particularly vexing because, as many of
you know, he is he is left handed.  Lew was on a respirator for 9 weeks and it was
touch and go whether he would survive at all.  He is now able to take calls and
I am certain he would love to receive cards and letters.

Sonny and Kay were understandably distracted, and so decided to cancel the reunion.
Now that Lew is recovering,  Loretta, Sonny and Kay are on track to head up a reunion
in the summer of 2007 in Coos Bay.
May 29, 2006
Hi Steve!

The reunion will be at Sonny and Kay's in Spokane, Washington.  July 14,15 & 16th.

4610 N Farr Rd
Spokane WA 99206
PH:  509-924-0321

Golf will be on Friday the 14th in the morning.
Horseshoe tournament and games.
There will be horseback rides for the children.

Our menu will be the same as usual.  Think of unique salads to make and deserts.
Bring your own beverages.  Old time country breakfast $1.00.

Dont forget the raffle table.  This is what helps finance our reunions.

Some motels that are close are Super 8, Motel 6, Quality Inn, (has indoor
pool and resturant) and The Hampton Inn.
Some RV parking.

This is basicly the letter that Kay sent out.  Second notice.

I heard it's your Moms birthday that same weekend and that you all have plans for that.
I had a email from Dennis that told me about that.

Hope the info helps.....  Hope all is well with you......Take care....Freddie Mae

Hi Everyone!

Our Brenton is now aboard the USS Nimitz in the Persian Gulf.  He is what
is called a Plane Captain responsible for making sure that the aircraft is
good to go before takeoff and after landing.  As you will see from his note
(below), it is a tough job in difficult conditions, but he seems to be really
enjoying it.  Those of you who know Brent, when you have a minute or two we�d
appreciate it if you would send him an email to his new email address:

or a letter to:

AN Brenton Warr
Unit 60123
FPOAP 96601-6111

VFA-41 is the famous Flying Aces squadron of FA/18 attack jets.  In related
news, Brent has invited me to join him on a Tiger Cruise (about 10 days
aboard the Nimitz sailing from Hawaii to San Diego, sometime around
Halloween), and I�m very excited!

Our best to everyone,

Nicholas Warr

Subject: Greetings From the Gulf pt. II

I had to go in a hurry last time, so I ended the email a little abruptly...
I'll pick up where I left off.  It's hot as hell here, the racks and food
suck, and the work is hard as hell.  I can't really complain though,
because it can always be worse... I could be in Iraq or Afghanistan, and
believe it or not, I'm kinda' having fun with it.  It's a neat job and
watching the takeoffs and recoveries can be pretty awesome.  And the
work can be pretty satisfying when you realize the larger scope of what
we're doing out here.

Anyway, the first thing you can do for me is circulate this and the last
email to all who care.  I cannot acces my hotmail from the ship so I can't
get to any of the contacts I have saved to my account, so if you pass this
on, and encourage everyone to write me at this address, and send me letters,
I'll have email and snail mail addresses to allow me to keep in contact
with everyone.

As for a care package, the only things I can think of are as follows:

1) A good set of "Mechanix" work gloves.  (Everyone else was issued these,
but my command saw fit to issue me heavy rawhide work gloves, which are
perfect for working  with bailing wire, but suck for working with a plane.)
"Mechanix" gloves are form fitting work gloves that protect the hands while
still allowing for manual dexterity.  I'll need size XL.

2) Some stationary w/ envelopes.

3)Some "liquid skin" for my blisters.

4) Some Dr. Scholls inserts for arch support.

5) A case of "Clif" bars, assorted flavors.

6) And for the "shop" some kind of candy or something, like those bags you
can get from the grocery store, that have a whole bunch of miniature candybars,
or something like that.

Anyway, I miss you guys a whole bunch, and I look forward to the cruise with you pop!!!

Love you, B-

Hi Brent!

It is truly great to hear from you.  You bet, the US Navy flag is flying, and
if anyone gives me any crap about it, I�ll send them your way (just kidding!).
I am just so proud of you, I�m about to burst at the seams!!

I am totally signed up for the Tiger Cruise.  I�ll go back on the travel agency�s
website and get everything started there.  Pam and I talked it over, and we both agree
that it�s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me (and you) and I wouldn�t miss it for
the world.  No conflict with travel plans.

Stay in touch, and let us know what kinds of things you want us to send in your
first care package.

Much love from Hendersonville,

Hey pop!!!  Hope you're flying the Navy flag proudly (hope your Marine buddies
aren't giving you too much shit about it!!!)  The Tiger cruise is actually from
HI back to San Diego, and it's about 10 days.  They're targetting to pick the
guests up around Halloween, so it may conflict with your travel plans... hope
not though (I'd REALLY like you there, just be prepared to climb a LOT of
Ladderwells and sleep in a coffin sized box!!!  You won't be able to get up in
one of the fighters, but you WILL be able to see an airshow from the carrier
deck and I THINK you might be able to go on a "COD" flight in an E-3 or a C-3,
so you may get to experience a catapult takeoff, and arresting gear landing (I've
only done the landing part thus far, it's pretty ...abrupt.)  There are 2 Marine
squadrons aboard this ship, so you'll fit right in.

It's pretty exciting stuff out here, they had me up on the flight deck by the
third day, and I'm trainiing to be a "plane captain."  A plane captain preps
the jets for departure, and secures it when it lands.  Strangely, although it's
the entry level position, it carries a sizeable amount of responsibility as I
would "own" my jet and would have the final say in whether or not my plane flies,
and a great deal of accountability if something goes wrong.

As for the boat itself, it kinda' sucks here, but I'm adjusting, the food can
be gross, the accomodations suck, and it's hot as hell (average of 100-120
degrees on the flightdeck,) but I COULD be on land in Iraq in 140 degree
average weather sleeping in a tent!!!

gotta go!!!

Hi Brent!

Your mom forwarded me your email, and it looks like she can�t go this time, but
I would love to go.  Do you really think they will let a Marine loose on a big
US Navy ship?  I wasn�t quite sure what a Tiger Cruise is, but I did a Google search,
and I think it�s 6 days or so aboard the USS Nimitz.  Right?  Boarding at Pearl
Harbor, and cruising to the Middle East?  Can you arrange a ride in the back seat
of an FA-18 for me?  Preferably in a combat zone, so I can personally torch a few
&$%#(**&$&@%$ terrorists!!  I�m sure with your rank and �influence� that can
be arranged��

I know your email said that you can invite two, and that you were targeting Steve
and Brian as well as me, so I guess I just want you to know that I would love to
have that experience, so if it works out at your end, consider me �signed up.�

I will be going to Kansas City from 1 � 7 August for my annual 1st Marine Division
reunion, but close to home before and after that.  Let me know as soon as possible
what you would like to see in your first care package, and we�ll get it going.

Take care, Brent.  Keep your eyes open, run fast, and keep your head down.

Hello again Steve,
Thanks so much for doing all that.
Please feel free to pass on my email address rebecca.line@blueyonder.co.uk

Hello Steve,

My name is Rebecca and I'm writing from England.
I have recently found out that I am related to the Warr family.  My great
great grandmother's name was Eva Parker and her father was called John Sherburn.
John had a sister called Hannah Sherburn who married Abraham Pressley and
they had a daughter called Elizabeth who married Joseph Warr.  They came
from Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England and I live near there and work
in the city centre.  I have seen the lovely photos on your website of their
son Samuel Sherburn and I am really fascinated by it all.  The family joined
the LDS church and left Sheffield to emigrate to Utah and I would love to
know all about that if you can tell me anything.  I am new at all this
family history stuff so I would be so grateful for anything that you can
tell me!  I have been reading up all about the LDS church and how it started
to try and find out more!  I have also used the email address you gave for
Ric and DeeDee Warr who supplied the photos of Samuel and his family to
let them know who I am.  It would be so lovely to find out that I still
have some relatives over in Utah or anywhere else over there.  I would
love to be able to write to anyone who wants to and swop photos etc.
I notice that Samuel had twin girls in his family and both my mum and
her sister gave birth to twin girls also so it must be something running
in the family!  I took copies of the photos to show my mum and she was

Please, please get in touch and let me know anything you can; I would
love to hear from anyone related to me over there.

I did find out that Samuel died in a car accident which was really sad.
I have really enjoyed looking at your website anyway and would love

to hear from any of you soon.

With very best wishes,

Hey steve, Josh here (Grandson of Sam, son of Don)
   Sorry for taking so long to pass this information on to you.... (and
honestly, I would have figured dad to have emailed you on this.)
I got married on October 30th 2004 to the now Nicole Danielle Warr. It was a
wonderfull reception in Rockwall Texas.  We're about to have all of our
wedding photos put on to a CD and then I will be able to send some over to
you.  Feel free to post this on the website I'm sure the reaction of most
the family would be:
"Cousin Josh got married."
"We.... have a cousin Josh?"
The last reunion I went to I was 5 or 6 so I don't blame that reaction, but
hopefully Nicole and I can make it to a reunion soon!

Take care

This is Erin Warr writing from my Dad's desk.
Our Dad Ric Warr passed away at 12:10 am January 29, 2005.
For those who don't know, maybe you could send out a group email or
something, I don't know how to do that.
I am here with Dee Dee trying to help with arrangements for the memorial. He
wanted to be cremated so that is what we will do.

I don't know what else to write, just wanted to get the word out.

From Marty

Tough news. I wanted to send you an email I sent out last night, in case you want to post
something on the website.

It's with a great deal of sadness that I inform you of the passing of my father, Ric Warr
at 12:10 am on January 29th, from complications resulting from cancer surgery. He was 72
years old. Pops had his bladder and prostate removed on January 17th, and was due to be
released the following Friday. I flew down on Saturday and he was still in the hospital
slow to recover. The nurses did a terrific job of trying to take care of him, but he had a
mild stroke and some problems with on of his arteries, but his blood pressure was good and
he was (seemed anyway) to be coming around. On Thursday I spent most of the day with him
and when I left, I actually thought he was getting better.

I called Friday evening and was transferred to ICU. He had started having trouble breathing
and they rushed him to intensive care. He stopped breathing in the elevator on the way down,
and they ended up putting him on a breathing machine (ventilator?) and also had to replace
some blood from internal bleeding. His blood pressure started to drop, and they kept his heart
beating as long as possible, but he expired at 12:10 am on Saturday. Friday was his
wedding anniversary, 20 + years with his wife Dee Dee who was with him when he passed, as
was my niece Cierra. He would have liked that.

I hope that this isn't too much info, but it's still fresh in my mind. I also hope that
this email isn't an intrusion. If you knew him, chances are you liked him. He was a better
man than I am, and I only hope I could be as caring, forgiving and as positive a person
as he was. He loved the shoe business, and he loved Nordstrom, and I would say for the
most part he had a happy life. I'm going to miss him terribly.

Thanks for listening. Take care of yourself...now!

Hello Steve,

I'm Joshua Warr, Don's son and Sam's grandson. I just wanted to drop you a line and say
your website is great, it's good being able to see family I either a) don't get to see
or b) don't even know.  This is my business email, I work for a company called Clearsky
24 which does custom digitizing for engraving and embroidery and a part from that I'm made
quite a name for myself in the Dallas music scene being one of the most popular bass
players in the area ( I also opened for Peter Frampton over the summer).  This Christmas
dad and I are heading up to Amarillo to celebrate Nanaw and Papaw (Sam and Wanda's) 60th
wedding Anniversary I'll get dad to take some pictures of the event for your website if
you'd like.  Well I must be off now.

Take Care

Steve, I sent a few e-mails to friends and family, but it was to close to
air time, so I don't know how many watched. Wasn't He Great?? I'm very
Proud. I could see your Dad bawling like a baby if He had witnessed it.
  Love to aaaaaall Ric

I agree 100%

Thanks for the thought, but I couldn't have watched this program as I just
read the e-mail I received today, after I got home from work.  It is
presently 1:07AM  EST 3/26/03.  Really to bad I didn't know sooner, or I
would have certainly taped it.  I'm sure that urban fighting is the worst
kind of warfare there is and I'm only guessing.  I would have liked to hear
my brothers thoughts on the subject, it's not a topic he has ever talked
about around me.  I am aware that he has written a book on the subject and
now he will tell a TV audience about what he knows on the subject.

Thanks for the effort Den,



Nick presented himself very well.  He was very powerful in his assessment of
the war, assessment of history and support of our troops.  Very poised and
confident.  I was proud of him.

As for Nick not talking to you about his experiences, he hasn't talked with
me either.  He just doesn't talk about it.  He wrote his book in an effort
to heal.  The book is now being used by the Marine Corp as one of their
training manuals.  Go figure.

If you want to read the book, you can get it at Amazon.com or any of the
other major book stores.  It's called Phase Line Green.  If nothing else, it
might help you to understand your brother a little.



Anybody besides me see Nick on CNBC last nite? (3/25) He was good. I called
my Dad right away (Sam) and he said 'Hey it's Nicky!!!'
It was kinda creepy seeing  someone on tv that resembles oneself.....

About Uncle Don

I believe that he was the Line Chief of the Squadron but not involved with
the actual mission. I know for sure that he was Line Chief of the Lucky Lady
the first plane to fly around the world. He was in the back up plane that
was to continue if the Lucky Lady went down. If you get in touch with Uncle
Sam He might be able to tell you more about the bombing as he spent some
time with Don While in Japan during the Korean War, also Sam was in a mess
on Guadalcanal and Uncle Bill was in a number of sea battles.  Sam can tell

Dear steve, Thought it about time I got back on this thing. I will not let it
defeat me.  To catch  you all up on my mother, she is doing good.  She is
residing in an adult fosterhome called PARKHILLS ADULT FAMILY HOME. It is a
lovely new home just three blocks from me.  The care is excellent.  She has had
a rough time, but doctor has got her on strict diet for very little protein,
work with diabetes day by day.  She still has one heck of a sense of humor and
keeps them laughing and spirits up at HOME.  There are six residents and they
all love her.  Anyone in family who would like to call her, may do so toll
free @ 1-877-586-8688. LOVE TO ALL  LORETTA

Hi Guys:

After 25 hours, either flying or laying over, I finally arrived home at 2:00 a.m. today.
I only got 3 hours sleep the night before, so kind of grueling to say the least!  The trip
was absolutely delightful though.  Hey, see if you can follow this.

October 22, 2002 precisely at noon EDT, was selected months ago as to when Jennifer and
Trent were to exchange their vows.  There hadn't been any rain in Antigua for a couple of
weeks, but low and behold on the given day at about 11:30 a.m. a tropical downpour began.
This of course delaying the much anticipated and carefully planned outdoor ceremony.  As
time went by and the drenching continued the groom getting grimmer and more sullen.  The
bride began shedding the expected tears, tucked away and separated from him with her
entourage and absolutely beautiful in her full length white wedding gown which trailed 6
or 7 feet behind her.  The bride exclaimed at about this point from nowhere that, "Brenda
was having a baby, her water must have broke with all of this rain"!  We all laughed,
greatful for a little levity at this very strained moment.  The rain is simply not going
to stop, all parties getting more strained as the minutes ticked by turning into a couple
of hours.

Yours truly, decides enough is enough!  There had to be someplace in this tropical
paradise resort which took all 10 of us 2 days and very little sleep to get to, where
this young couple could happily exchange their vows.  I went on a quick tour, shortly
discovering the perfect spot under cover and with a view of the ocean, clouds and a
small island in the distance.  I then proceeded to tell all parties concerned, that
there are no accidents and because of the unplanned downpour, I had unwittingly
discovered the very best possible site for this momentous occasion.  I need to insert
here, that I had all these months been nagged by the date of October 22nd being of
significance somehow, but not sure of what.

The actual wedding vows were very happily exchanged at 2:40 p.m. EDT.  From that point
in time, everything fell into place as it was supposed to, including the private dinner
for the bride and groom.  The rest of us celebrated in our own special way, dining and
drinking (I don't drink alcohol any longer, over a year now) the afternoon and early
evening away.  Great time!!!

Upon returning to our room we found the message light in it's quiet blink.  I began get
excited all over again as I dial the hotel operator. Now, I'm hearing the news that
Brenda gave birth to a Baby Girl at 11:39 a.m. PDT and struck by the fact that these
two very special events were indeed remarkable, in that they occurred seconds apart.
I'm suddenly struck with the reason that the date of October 22nd had been nagging at
me all these months, is that I believe that it is also our Father's Birthday.  I haven't
verified this information, as all of my stuff where I would go to confirm is still packed
from my move.  I do believe I'm right however, please correct me if I'm wrong.

The rest of the 9 days were unremarkable.  Antigua is a very poor small island country
which won their independence from Great Britain only 21 years ago.  It has a mostly black
population of about 75,000 friendly, warm and polite people who speak English with a
unique dialect, but leans close to Britain's English.

Have to go to a meeting, I'll write again.

Top of page October 9, 2002
 :-)  I will be sure to have you all including Dennis on our email notification regarding
the birth of our new baby (coming soon (within 10-15 days)!

October 8, 2002

Sorry Steve, another correction.  My daughter Jennifer new e-mail address:
sunnymoos@aol.com   By the way nuptails will be celebrated on Antigua in the Caribean on
October 21, 2002 to Trent Wenck.  The wedding will be attended by myself, Carol,
Trent's parents and Jennifer's cousin Tammy and her husband Jeff.  We did have a great
celebration in Sacramento, September 28, 2002.  It was called a combination Bridal Shower,
Bachelor Party.  I called it a Wedding Reception before the Wedding.  It was great fun!
I still intend to followup as per your writing.

Hi, Carrie; Hi, Brent.
I just got a letter from my cousin, Loretta Neitch (Aunt May's daughter) with news about
the Warr Family Reunion, 2002.  The dates are July 11, 12, 13 & 14 (Thursday thru Sunday)
in Gold Beach, OR, at the Rod and Gun Club (where it always is).  The theme this year is
Americana, good old U.S.A., Red, White and Blue (pretty appropriate, based on current
events).  They are taking pressure off Max and Bonnie's wonderful hospitality by having
all the gatherings, meals and activities at the gun club.  People will be able to camp
there this year.  Bonnie can help with motel reservations, and Max is the man to talk
to about the golf tournament (Friday the 12th).  As always, they are asking for
contributions for the raffle.  This is how they pay for the reunion every year.
You guys might want to drop Loretta a note with your addresses; she doesn't have them,
so she asked me to pass this information on to you.  Here's her address:
Loretta Neitch
2202 W. 31st Ave.
Kennewick, WA  99337
Here are the key phone numbers:
Loretta  (509) 585-3730
Sonny & Kay  (509) 924-0321
Bonnie & Max  (541) 247-2758

Somehow, Pam and I are going to figure out a way to be there.  My 1st Marine Division
reunion is in New York City (NEW YORK CITY????), yes, New York City, during the preceeding
week, so we'll have to figure out how Pam can take two weeks off when she's only supposed
to get 2 weeks vacation for the entire year.  But, we are going to be there (both places),
come heck or high water.  Let us know if you guys will be there, and how much time you can
spend, so we can plan a special activity (like the mail boats, but I don't know if that's
getting boring after all these years) for our immediate family.  I do like to play in the
golf tournament, and the horseshoe tournament is typically Saturday morning and afternoon
and sometimes runs over into Sunday.  Can we even think about taking one more day (Thursday
preceeding or Monday following) to sneak in a boat ride??????  Everyone can only do what
you can do, so don't worry about all my crazy plans; Pam knows I'm crazy, because I don't
have to work any more (ha, ha).
Hope to see all of you there.
  February 23, 2002 
Hey Steve:  How are you, your old e-mail address failed so I went to Nick, he also had
incorrect address.  So I thought what now coach????  The lightbulb :-) went on, I might
be a little slow but not stupid, went to warrpath.  Not only did I get your address, big
bonus: pics of Brenda and Shaun's wedding.  Brenda has been going to e-mail them to me
but hasn't as of yet.

 I'm going to have to get after her for pics, the wedding was beautiful.  Also
great new's, how could I forget (age?), they came back from the honeymoon "pregnant"
wow!  It certainly never dawned on me, that Brenda of all my kids would make me a
grandpa again.
